OMG! We won Most Aussome Beauty Blog & Most Aussome Blog in the Her.ie Aussie Blog Awards!

Oh lads....  I'm too old for excitement like this!  Let me set the scene.  I hadn't seen Joanne properly since her honeymoon, so our plan for the night was to pop along to the Her.ie Aussie Blog Awards, have the chats with everyone and wait to see who won the awards before heading home for a grand Chinese takeaway.


We had some prosecco, had the chats and then it was awards time.  I was filming the whole thing like ya do and you'll see the whole thing in our next vlog.  You'll see Michelle from Her.ie giving an amazing speech and I said it to Joanne afterwards that Michelle just gets it.  She gets that most of us work full time in other jobs, that we blog as a hobby when we come home from work and understands the time and effort that goes into it.  You'll see Michelle announce Lovely Girlie Bits as Most Aussome Beauty Blog and you'll see me crying because I was just so shocked and overwhelmed by the whole thing!  We had some fierce competition, hence why I didn't even tell mam we'd been shortlisted and she went mad when her friend in Portugal told her the good news, and why I didn't even say it to any of the girls at work that we were going because I didn't think we'd a baldy chance of winning!  I was happy enough to pack on a bit of makeup, burn my hand twice trying to curl my hair and wear a top from Asda.  I'm all glamour me!




You'll then see Michelle announce Lovely Girlie Bits as Most Aussome Blog and we won a trip to Australia!  Even typing that doesn't make it feel real and I feel like the whole night was a dream.  I've no idea how I managed to drive home because I was in a daze and hopefully by the time you're reading this I'll be able to form proper sentences!  And yes, I cried again in front of everyone!  I also shed a few tears reading everyone's tweets, emails, messages on Facebook and Instagram and you've no idea how much it meant to read everyone's well wishes.  You're all little stars and made the night even better if that was possible.


Thank you so much to everyone who nominated us in the first place and thanks to Burrell PR, Her.ie and Aussie for seriously making our night.  We're already trying to figure out where we want to go in Australia, and you can bet we'll be vlogging everything because wherever we go, you get to come with us!

Thanks to those who've been here since the start of Lovely Girlie Bits 4 years ago and hi to all the new readers.  Now the pressure is on to continue being an Aussome Beauty Blog!  It's a good thing I love it so much eh?!

  7. Right, so I never ever ever comment here even though your blog is one of the first things I read every day, but I have to say I'm so delighted for you and this is so thoroughly well deserved. I think your blog is exactly what a beauty blog should be - honest and in-depth reviews of beauty products with a healthy dose of humour and fun. I'm thrilled for you!
